Wow! Totally my fault. I forgot to change the quantity.
Try it again now, it should work.

How do I go about just getting the nut? I've got everything else on hand.

Hello,

I am very interested in buying the Z-Axis ACME upgrade kit. However, when I try to place an order PayPal tells me they are all sold out. Based on earlier posts it looks like there will be more available soon. Any idea when?

Thanks,

Jon

SO I finally got around to installing my ACME upgrade. Result? ACME rod 1, hacksaw blade 0 :-)

Looks like I have to find some more effective cutting tools! Anyone have any suggestions? Will a Dremel cutoff wheel do the job, or am I going to have to go beyond? (I am out of wheels, so if I am going to the hardware store anyhow, I might as well come back with the right stuff )

Did you clamp the rod down before cutting?

I almost broke a hacksaw blade, then clamped the rod and finished the cut w/o further incident.
